We would love to come and celebrate at your school with your students.
For primary school learners we have four plays – including our Christmas play, Santa’s Pants for six to eight year olds. Stone Soup is ideal for 1st and 2nd; A Monkey’s Tale is recommended for 3rd and 4th; and The Lemon Thieves is a great show for 5th and 6th.
For older learners we have two plays. For 1st and 2nd we have Murder at Manor House which is one of our most recent plays, premiered in 2014. For 3rd and 4th we are bringing back everyone’s favourite: My Lucky Compass which was first performed on Thursday 14th September, 2000.
We work hard to always bring you shows which are fresh, entertaining and include the best of everything: from memorable characters; professional actors; music; staging, dance and audience participation; to engaging teacher and student resources .

Remember the lemons when you are making them at home.
And don’t forget to flip your pancake!
Five facts about Pancake Day
1. Pancake Day is traditionally known as Shrove Tuesday and is historically a religious occasion relating to the Christian Feast of Easter.
2. In the UK it has become commonly known as Pancake Day due to the tradition of making panckes using ingredients which were often given up for Lent.
3. Shrove Tuesday is also known by other names around the world, including Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras.
4. It is customary in France to touch the handle of the frying pan and make a wish while the pancake is turned, holding a coin in one hand.
5. The largest pancake ever made and successfully flipped measured 15.01 metres wide, 2.5cm deep and weighed three tonnes. It was made in Rochdale in 1994.
